The Owner Says
Features & FacilitiesThe small yurt has a king-sized bed while the larger ones have a double bed and 4 singles (all bed linen and towels supplied). 2 bathrooms both with shower, wash basin and composting toilet. Plugs available for hairdryers, straighteners and electric razors. 1 communal kitchen with an electric hob, microwave oven and fridge (all pans, crockery and cutlery supplied). Yurts are solar powered which allows for lighting and for phone and tablet charging. 1 wood-fired hot tub on site. This is a working farm, so you'll see sheep, pigs and cattle during your stay. They are in a separate, fenced off, field next to the yurts. However, sheep may roam around the glamping site from time to time to keep the grass cut. There's a community veg garden, orchard (at certain times of the year you will be able to get involved in the fruit picking) and regular events are held on site, including food making courses in the farm shop, summer BBQ’s and wine tasting to name a few.
ActivitiesWalking and cycling are always a popular starting point. The farm has direct access to Brampton Valley Way – a popular local route – and the town of Market Harborough is within walking distance (it's less than 2 miles on foot). It's a lovely town; great for shopping, eating out and learning the local history. By car, meanwhile, you can head further to find Northampton (15 miles) and Leicester (20 miles), each full of history and with plenty to occupy you on rainy days. The local fishing lakes (¾ mile; 01858 434098) are just down the road and historic Kelmarsh Hall (2½ miles; 01604 686543) opens its house and gardens during the holidays. To truly unwind, there's also a meditation centre (3 miles; 01604 686778) nearby!
Food & DrinkOur new Canvas Cafe on site is a unique and tasty place to eat. Breakfast, brunch, lunch and sweet treats available everyday. Special extras on offer, such as local food and drink hampers, and afternoon tea delivered to your yurt. The farm is also home to an award winning farm shop – Waterloo Cottage Farm Shop (01858 467158) – so there's no excuse not to have a big old barbecue for all the gang! For the nearest pub, hop to The George in Great Oxendon (01858 465205; less than 400ft away) – newly refurbished and serving excellent food. For anything else, there are plenty of cafés and restaurants in Market Harborough.
From the A14 leave at junction 2 and follow signs for A508 Market Harborough. Follow the A508 towards Market Harborough for 3¼ miles (approx. 5 minutes) until you reach Great Oxendon. Keep following the A508 through Great Oxendon, you will pass The George pub on your right and Country Bumpkin Yurts is 120 metres beyond the pub on your right, before exiting the village.
Alternatively, from the Centre of Market Harborough Town, follow the main High Street (High Street/ A4304) Signposted Northampton (A508) and leisure Centre. Continue straight onto Northampton Road and continue for just under a mile to a roundabout. At the roundabout, take the 2nd Exit onto Northampton Road (A508). Continue to follow for approx. 1½ miles. Enter the Village Great Oxendon. Country Bumpkin Yurts (also Signposted Waterloo Cottage Farm Shop) is a few metres on your left.
